is to transforms the lives of people so that they will live a victorious, successful and triumphant life for Christ.

Love with Genuineness

Genuineness forces us to remember that no one is perfect.  God has delivered us all out of something.   So one has a right to be smug.  We seek to be real and authentic in our word, expression and display of love.

Our Mission

we commit to creating a Christian community and culture where we  grow together, worship together and win souls for Christ together.

Serve with Commitment

Commitment is the thing that helps you continue when you feel like quitting.  We must serve God and people with that kind of passion and with a mindset of excellence.
